AMAZING EXPERIENCE
JacquelineL2214
, Oct 2019
We had an amazing experience! We were picked up directly from our hotel and they were even accommodating in taking our 3 suitcases into the desert with us! During the ride, the guide kept a great atmosphere and taught us about Dubai. We did the vintage Land Rover desert safari which was incredible! This was during sunset, with many great photo ops. The Falcon show was fun and the dinner in the desert was awesome! The set up was great, the food was absolutely delicious, plentiful and interesting, and the shows were fun. There was hookah and camel rides and Henna. Sleeping over night in the desert was also an incredible experience- all the lights were turned off and the night sky was bright with the moon and stars. It was quite hot overnight but tolerable.

Un joli moment

Prise en charge parfaite depuis notre hôtel, tout est bien rôdé. Belle balade dans le désert et soirée spectacle agréable, le repas est très bon. Les chambres bien que très simples sont joliment aménagées, plus d électricité après 22h30 et pas de sdb et toilettes particulières mais n oublions pas que nous sommes dans le désert...Le vol en montgolfière est très beau et très pro même si on est nombreux à l intérieur. Le petit déjeuner qui suit est de qualité. Une belle expérience à conseiller

He sufrido un lamentable atropello...

He sufrido un lamentable atropello por la compañía organizadora de este viaje. Estuve en vilo por la hora de recogida en el hotel, porque hasta el último momento no supe a que hora venían. Desafortunadamente el clima no acompañaba y las previsiones eran de mal tiempo, así que esperaba que cancelasen el viaje, pero no lo cancelaron. Me recogieron y nos llevaron al desierto, un desierto en donde era complicado hacer una foto sin que salieran edificios en el horizonte. La cena árabe no tuvo nada de especial, al contrario, bastante incómoda, y la noche en una estructura metálica cubierta con telas como de alfombra fue horrorosa, sobre un colchón de muelles en el suelo. No hay duchas, no te dan toallas, y por la noche se corta el agua. A la hora de la cena me comunicaron que no habría globo por el clima, con la misma previsión que antes de salir, así que me pregunto por qué no lo cancelaron entonces, seguramente para asegurarse la mitad del dinero, ya que me devolvieron lo que quisieron. NUnca más con Viator, y nunca más con Platinum Heritage.
